  1. For the past year I've been spec'ing and collecting parts for the "ultimate street M10" build for my 1971 2002. I've kinda lost interest and decided to move forward with an M20 swap as it's more in line with my budget and needs. I am now selling everything I have for the M10 in hopes that someone else on here is interested in something similar. The M10 I planned to build is a S14 crank (84mm) stroker, utilizing longer rods (144mm) with 10:1 CR custom pistons, and a Dr. Schrick 304 cam. While the intent was to build a torquey mid-range motor, in theory this combination should net 180hp at the crank on pump gas and safely rev to 7k. Most of everything I purchased was sourced new from Ireland Engineering. The long block I intended to use was a lightly used factory re manufactured M10 with an E12 head purchased from a member on the FAQ. The head is complete and free of any cracks, but I was planning on doing a 3-angle valve job "while I was in there" along with new valve seals. The S14 crank I have is in good condition and has already been machined to fit the M10 timing cover. The snout of the crank still needs to be threaded and keyed. The block is currently bored at 89.22 with the old 8.3:1s still in place (will remove rotating ass. before sale) and the new Ross Racing pistons are sized for 89.50 so a light hone and a deck will be required. The bundle of parts with my purchase price is as follows: S14 84mm Crank - $1200 BMW Reman Longblock - $800 10:1 Ross Racing Pistons - $700 IE 144mm Rods w/ ARP HW - $636 IE Alpina-style Tri-Y Header - $560 NOS "Dr. Schrick" 304 Cam - $450 Weber 38/38 w/ Canon manifold - $350 ARP Head studs - $205 SS Strut Brace - $175 IE Engine hardware kit - $130 IE Adjustable Single Row Cam sprocket - $129 ARP Main studs - $128 Coated Rod bearings - $115 Silicone (black) Coolant Hoses w/ HW - $113 Oil pump sprocket and chain - $105 IE HD Valve springs - $90 Upper gasket - $73 Coated Main bearings - $70 Single Row Crank sprocket - $69 Timing chain - $56 Lower gasket set - $51 IE Windage tray - $48 Oil pan baffle - $45 Tension rail - $38 Oil pump shims - $21 Exhaust Heatshield - $18 Chain guide - $7 Total Cost $6,382 The only part I had yet to purchase was a MLS headgasket as I was waiting till assembly to determine what height would be necessary. Also, I planned on using a 1-2-3 distributor, but I didn't make a final decision on which version to purchase. I also have several extra gaskets, new sensors, and a few other small items I will include in the sale. I would like to sell everything together, but I'm not pressed on keeping the 38/38 or IE strut brace with everything as you might want to run a different fuel delivery setup or a different chassis stiffener. Everything is ready to ship. Almost all of the parts are still in the original packaging from when I received them and the block, head, pan, etc, are disassembled, cleaned, and oiled. I am asking $5800 for the lot, but I am open to offers. I can offer pics on request, but most items are new and self-explanatory so I didn't see the point. Thanks for reading, Chuck

  5. Just wanted to thank everyone involved with the Texas Trifecta HPDE event, especially my instructor Tim. It was a fantastic couple of days on the track and everyone was really nice. Here is some video of the track from my 2002 with an s14. Eric

  8. So I was deep cleaning my door cards at about 2pm today when I get a call from a bmw friend. He tells me he's at the South Coast Auction House going through the lots when he came across some car parts. We then start a FaceTime and he goes through the lots. I was mildly excited because I knew there was some cool parts in there, but I wasn't sure what any of it would cost. Well, I put some real clothes on (because I was going out in public) and drive over the the auction house about 20 minutes before the bidding starts. I check out the lots and sure enough, there were some cool parts. I figured I could pick and choose what I wanted to bid on, but oh boy was I wrong. I just bought way too many Porsche and BMW parts and I have no idea why I did it. Here are the parts. I'm still scratching my head as to why I did this. e30 m3 ecu (and 10 other bmw ECUs) hmm, looks like two or three incomplete upper s14 parts, and 2 s14 blocks with one tii block: Transmissions? The top one looks like a 6 speed with a plate of some sort out front, and the bottom looks like a g245 but I didn't confirm either. Race car stuff? Looks like BMW parts, but could be porsche parts I think these are from a euro e36 m3. There are other euro m3 parts in here but I didn't photograph them. and better photos of all the stuff I bought. There are a bunch of Porsche parts. I saw stuff from a 964, 993, Carrera GT, and who knows what else. I'm not happy about this, but I'm not sad either. I wasn't able to take an intimate look at what I bought, but I will do so tomorrow when I pick it all up. I'll probably have to rent a uhaul for all this stuff. Come buy this stuff. I don't really want it.
  9. I came across a used and damaged s14 crank in 2.3L. It's visibly damaged, but is it fixable? I ask, because I do not know. Photos for the visually impaired: If fixable, would make for a fun stroker motor. -RD
  10. Price:: 8100 Location: : Salt Lake City, UT I had the aspirations of building of an M2, but am going to use the original engine from my 2002 instead and just do a performance rebuild modeled after the S14 2.3l. Comes with: Engine block/head Wire Harness ECU w/ dinan chip Radiator Fan Alternator AC Compressor Throttle Bodies/Airbox & MAF Anything else as pictured - with exception of the Getrag 265 transmission. I'll be keeping that and rebuilding it for my E30 M3. I'm not the worlds greatest mechanic so if you want to know what comes with it that I may not have listed, hopefully it's in the pictures. I also have an E30 M3 gauge cluster that I intended on including in my dashboard along with the M2 build for sale. These easily go for $550+ on R3Vlimited and S14.net. Asking $500. I have a fuse box on the way as well. $100 If interested, I also have have E30 M3 seats that need re-upholstering. $250 I was really going to do a true M2 build - with as many parts from an E30 M3 as I could. Everything was plugged and prepped for storage by a BMW Mechanic in Kentucky who pulled the engine from a running E30 M3 for someone who was dead set on doing an S52 swap (blasphemy I know...) The owner sold it to the mechanic, and then he sold it to me. Engine was pulled last year. Engine had extra oil prepped in each cylinder, was given all the necessary steps to sit for a year or two. Has been stored in a temperature controlled garage along with my garage queens. Shipping should be $400 - $700 depending where you live. Salt Lake has plenty of national freight shipping company. I can drop off at one of the facilities on behalf of the seller.
  11. I've acquired a pretty straight '76 that I'm going to motor swap and build into a hot streetcar. I'm having a hard time deciding what I want to throw into it for a power plant. I have a complete and running, but terminally rusty '91 318is that I recently purchased to use the drivetrain out of. It has higher mileage at ~200k so a refresh would be required. Thoughts are with this is to strap on a supercharger or turbo to see ~250hp. My friend recently mentioned to me that he was thinking of selling his spare S14 with tranny. The motor is a full drop in from radiator to the dme. Figuratively I believe I could build out the m42 and be into the drivetrain ~3k. The s14 is roughly twice that. Is a hot NA motor the way to go with these cars? I had a e30 m3 and while it was fun the motor was pretty uninspiring under 5k. Is the extra money up front for the S14 the way to go when/if it comes time for resale? I haven't seen a M2 trade recently so in pretty unfamiliar with the market
  12. Hello everyone. I'm new to bmw2002faq so forgive me in advance for any dumb questions. I bought a 76 2002 project car last October and it came with a full set of extra parts including a complete s14 engine, transmission , wiring harness, ECU / everything in the enclosed picture from a 1989 E30 M3. I have everything you see in the attached photos. My issue is I'm not sure if I want to go the S14 engine swap route ..... car came with a perfectly good m10 engine. I see lot's of misc s14 parts on ebay etc but never the complete package like I have. My question is what is this engine/ tranny worth? Anyone interested in this for their project? Right now it is just taking up space in my garage.
  13. Im selling BMW AG Motorsport classic parts, anyone interested? Used Complete racing Schnitzer 20-4 turbo M10 available.
  14. Hello Guys, for some weird resason the bolt pattern of my 2002 M10 Oil Pan is not matching the bolt pattern of the S14 The Guide for the M2 says I can Use the 2002 m10 oil pan but due to bolt pattern im not being able to do so What Carters can be used for the m2?
  15. Hello fellow enthusiasts! So I bought this complete S14B23 engine and since I have a touring Im planning on installing this engine at it. I only have my 2002 Touring Tii which had the injection system removed and 45 DCOes added and the S14B23 engine Can you Please provide me a list of parts I need to install run and drive this engine at my 02? Is there a Recipy and Ingredients list for a basic Swap? What parts do I need? What needs to be cut or modified or removed etc. I need all possible assistance. If you already did this swap, know how to do it or what is required or know someone who did it and you have information to share please do so. All assistance will be appreciated there is no small cooperation. All comments welcomed! Cheers!
  16. Hi guys, As I'm preparing for the s14 swap, I am going through checklists, making sure I have what I need where I need it. I've been looking through most m2 swaps on this forum, and have noticed that US s14 engines have exhaust headers with "air ports" coming off from every primary tube. I haven't had a chance to measure the primaries and secondaries yet, but my guess is that this is a "Euro" header of some sort. I would almost go as far as to say that these are a bit beefier and possibly have larger primaries than a US exhaust manifold. Those who have done this swap, what are your opinions on this? I want to document this swap correctly, using the right parts. After a quick google search, I was brought to this link. It has a lot of useful information that I will try and clarify dimensions within the next two days. http://www.e30m3project.com/e30m3performance/myths/more_myths1/headers/index.htm Here is what I have going on. Notice the header in these photos.
  17. 1974 BMW 2002-S14 for Sale $19,500 in Denver For Sale is my 1974 BMW 2002tii that is now powered by a 1988 e30 M3 engine, (the S14 engine). It has the matching 5 speed transmission with a short shift kit. The engine and transmission are in superb condition and need nothing. Installation was done with great care and craftsmanship. The car also has a custom stainless steel exhaust from the header pipe back, custom TIG welded, and ending with a stainless steel performance Magnaflow exhaust. I left the Cat and the resonator on as they do not really affect performance, but they do a lot to make the exhaust tone street-able (it was really too loud without). The suspension (shocks -Bilstein, springs - Suspension Techniques, and torsion bars) have all been upgraded to support the M3 drivetrain. It has disc brakes in front with Carbotech pads. Rears are upgraded (528) drums with near newer shoes. It handles awesome and stops great. The History: I have owned this car for about 7 years. I bought it already converted with an s14 engine. Unfortunately, that engine was soon to expire. I was already committed to the car so I had Autosport Werks of Broomfield, CO source and install another S14 engine in 2010. If any of you know Autosport Werks, they are one of the premier Colorado BMW and Audi car shops. The engine came from a wrecked 1988 e30 M3 in El Cajon, CA and had approximately 100k miles on it. I have only put about 2,000 miles on the car since I have owned it. That is why I am selling...I just do not drive the car enough. It’s time to get back the garage space and let it go. I do not know much about the history, but before me, the car came from California to Wisconsin and I brought it to Colorado. I do not know the actual mileage of the car. The Present: Within the last 300 miles the car received a complete tune up at Hotchkiss Automotive in Denver which included changing all fluids, H4 headlight upgrade, Installation of a new Legacy GPS speedometer, New horn and switch, new high beam switch, New Rota RB 15x7 wheels and Faulken asymmetrical tread tires, and alignment. Hotchkiss is a great shop and I know they would be happy to provide feedback on the car. The car runs great. The body is good, but not great and needs some attention, not rust attention, but a good paint job. The battery has been relocated to the trunk with a rear brace installed between the strut towers. I have 2 additional sets of wheels that come with the car, one set BMW 14” bottle caps with xxx tires and the other set are 13” BMW gold basket weaves with Bridgestone Potenza tires. The extra wheels and tires are not new. The heater does not work; never did when I bought it and still doesn’t. The windshield squirts do not work. The reservoir, pump, and hoses were removed by the previous owner and it appears there is not room for the reservoir with the current engine configuration. Two speed wipers work great though, as do all lights, blinkers, hi-lo beams, horn and gauges. The center rearview mirror is from and e30 and has the integral map lights (which work well). Tan carpet is in great shape. Headliner is in good shape. Back window deck lid could use replacement. Has the Italian flush front blinkers (those are going for $600 a pair themselves right now, if you can find them). Dash has a few cracks but looks nice. Original tii clock is there but does not work. As I mentioned Tires are new (< 300 miles on them), brakes are probably at 75%, clutch has just been checked and is in great shape. The stance of the car is perfect, lowered about 1" with 15x7 Rota wheels. This car starts right up, settles into a nice hum, and then rips. The car is essentially rust free. I would say completely rust free except there is some paint bubbling along the chrome trim at the base of the windows in both doors, primarily the drivers side. This is not the usual rust one sees on 2002s and must be from a poor paint preparation at some point in the past. The floors, rockers, shock towers front and rear, are rust free and solid. The gas tank is in great shape. The car is burgundy (Malaga) in color with a tan interior. The interior is generally quite good, with performance seats (vinyl), five point harnesses from RJS Racing Equip., and an ok stereo. Regular seat belts are also there for everyday use. There is a little wear showing on the drivers seat, speaker grilles are missing on doors, and the horsehair padding on the rear seat is worn out. The rear seat looks fine, just don't plan to ride comfortably back there. The bumpers, while the 74 style, have been moved in, close to the body, vastly improving the looks of these bumpers. The doors close nicely. However the rubber seals on door and quarter windows should be replaced; they are a little tired. As I mentioned before, a paint job is in order; trunk, quarters, and roof look to be original paint, but doors fenders and hood have definitely been re-coated at some point, and not done so well. A good paint job would make this a show stopper more than it already is. Even as it is, this car gets lots of attention. Trim is in decent shape all around, but not perfect. The windshield has a small rock chip but I have a new rubber gasket and aluminum lock strip for a new windshield. If you are looking for great fun with no hassles, this is your chance. It’s fun, it’s a piece of history, Its cool, and I’ll be sad to see it go. I have tried to describe the car as accurately. The car needs nothing to be great fun car and with some attention to paint and body, could be a real gem. As it is, it is absolutely a blast to drive. Feel free to call with any questions 303 - two five three - 5 four seven 5, or [email protected] $19,500 in Denver. Thanks, Martin
  18. Longshot here, but looking to see if any of the other M2 folks might have an S14 valve cover laying about. Missed out on one on eBay by mere seconds a month ago. Would love to have one to help move my project along. Thanks for your time. Bob
  19. Hi all, This past weekend I found out that I think I need to replace my starter (74 2002). I was surprised to find this out as I replaced the starter just 3 years ago. It is a stock, M10 starter. My questions to everyone here are: -shouldn't the starter last longer than 3 years? -Is there something I should check to make sure I am not "killing" my starter quicker than normal? -What is the lifespan of starters for stock m10 engines? Cheers, B
  20. Some of you may recall me, several months ago, stating that I first heard and then saw a wicked blue 2002 in West Little Rock which I was unable to chase down. Well I got to meet the vehicle's owner, enjoy several "spirited" ride-alongs, and snap a few photos to share here. The car, a '71 M2, was built to spec for its owner, Robert, by the folks at Vintage Sports and Restoration in Bow, NH and I must say, I'm impressed with the finished product. Furthermore, the car's owner is a true Bimmer nut and a really nice guy. Look for this car to be at the 16th annual MidAmerica '02 Fest this coming April in Eureka Springs, AR
  21. Year:: 1973 Make:: BMW Model:: 2002 Price:: 16,500 Location: : Tidewater, Virginia SOLD!!! 16.5K dollars OR BEST OFFER For sale is my Verona red 1973 BMW 2002 - M2 S14 conversion, street-legal car. This started as a ground-up resto that had a built M10 engine that was getting tired. Scope creep led to this S14, MM 5 speed car. It has race seats, roll bar and harness with the back seats out. The S14 had 140K on the clock when we freshened it up, headers, 13lb light flywheel by VAC, camber plates, 5 speed conversion re-built by Metric Mechanic, short-shift, fresh LS 320is rear, all new Ireland Engineering stage II suspension with new urethane bushings all around, springs, Billy-sports, fresh sway bars, strut bar, custom radiator, tii struts, tii brakes, tii booster, (tii sub-frame powder coated waiting to go in), disc rear brakes, stainless steel lines…etc… if you could throw money at it, I did. I’ll have 23+K in parts alone not including the car. No rust except for a thin line along the floor that was treated and a small bubble on the fender lip. I know this because this was a ground up - down to the metal resto. Tons of pics if needed. Issues to finish - We ran it and realized we choked it with the exhaust. Y pipe into a 2.5 wasn't enough. It also was running warm so we ditched the thermo and put in a custom radiator. The trans was not shifting smoothly so we got ALL new guts on hand - pressure plate, throw out bearing, clutch, yet to put in. I have alt gauges in the works and a few cosmetics to do like re-chrome the lower chrome molding. Needs a battery, some TLC, and the proper passionate soul to finish it up. I have had this car for 12 years and started the conversion a few years ago, but medical bills and unemployment has force this sale. I think the asking price is fair, I have additional parts to thro win as well. Happy to answer any questions or send more pics if needed. pic below https://www.flickr.com/gp/[email protected]/E4BT25 tbcarozza at yahoo serious inquiries please… Steve
  22. Hi all! About Me: I have been a long-time BMW lover and 2002 admirer - I actually learned to drive manual on my uncle's '74 2002. Over the years, I have owned an E36 M3, two E30s (318i and 325is stroker track rat), and an E34 M5 (still in the stable). This past Saturday, I took the plunge and officially joined the 2002 community. The Car - 1973 2002tii M2 Touring: This car apparently has quite a bit of history behind it. It was originally built by the Einzig shop and raced in Germany before it was imported to the US. While in the US, it has been owned by two collectors in California, one of which was featured in a BMW Story video. I am super excited about the car and have already started tinkering with it. You can find more pictures from the PO here. The car isn't perfect and I've already started ordering parts (door brakes, hatch shocks, handbrake upgrade kit). The biggest issue thus far is the fuel smell in the cabin. Since the car is a touring, there is no divider to contain the smell of the fuel in the back. I've searched through numerous threads and I think I have enough direction to start investigating, but any additional help will be appreciated. Excited to meet some of you guys in the Bay Area! Best, Hootie
  23. In preparation for an upcoming event on the central California coast, Ali Javidan brought his car up to the KoogleWerks facility for some special requests. Bouncing back and forth between filling production parts orders and working on Rick's pig cheek car (another story) in a little over a month we got a lot done. Here are some of the details (all items on Ali's "to-do list" 1: cut out existing seat mount sheet metal structure and fabricate a lower system to mount aftermarket Recaro seat 2: front (engine sump) skid pan 3: in-trunk "spill-proof" fuel filler system 4: cover LED tail lamps for protection and cosmetics 5: swap out external fuel pump for in-tank unit 6:driving light tie-in brackets to eliminate vibration 7: under dash panel to accommodate electric power steering 8: center console cup holder 9: better trunk mounted battery tray/rack ...and a dozen other little things associated or otherwise! (the reality of a "simple list" can often be complicated) the result was, we got a lot done and had a good time doing it. Some new production parts were birthed as a side effect as well!
  24. I heard from a buddy that he heard my car was being blasted the past couple days and was to be EP'd (epoxy primed) today. Last I saw it looked like this. I figured I had better see this for myself, primarily because I was considering going elsewhere since there had been no progress in about a month. I show up and this is what I see. Needless to say, I was happy as anything. So I shot a couple pics. JULY 10thth, 2013 So I visited the body shop today, July 10, 2013 and I felt like a Loomis or Brinks truck doing weekly drop offs of cash. Anyway, the dings and dents of 39 years have been banged out, and new life is breathed into the old girl. First coat of prime is on and needs to be blocked and some pits need to be tidied up. I see some #022 paint in the future, it'll be like a sunrise of sorts. Anyway some shots from today's visit. UPDATE July 24th 2013 So July 24th I head over to the shop and see this out back by the hedge, with no one in sight resembling a worker........ but I did seize the chance to snap a couple pictures of it since it was nice and sunny, so no flash etc.... I was a little disappointed with the standby that my car had been put on, but what can I do right? UPDATE August 1st, 2013 Today, I was scheduled to drop off some cash to get current with the progress. I stopped in around 10 this morning to not see my car anywhere inside, and thankfully not in the rain. I bumped into the paint guy and he said I got there in the nick of time as they were about to re prime it and he wanted to show the seam sealing and so on. I peaked into the booth and this is what I got to see and snap a couple pics of. Then the painters headed in to start priming. The window was pretty grimey .... so this is the best I could do capturing the action. When the first guy came out, I asked if they would get to some orange today. Well he said go grab a coffee and we'll be done orange and clear by lunch. I came back at 12:30 and they were cleaning their guns.
